What is a Tummy Tuck?
The Tummy Tuck, also known as an abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure designed to correct a loose, sagging, or protruding abdomen, which can be brought on through a dramatic weight loss, pregnancy, or simply the aging process, all of which can cause the stomach muscles to weaken. As this happens, the mid-section will experience a loss of tone and elasticity, but diet and exercise alone cannot correct these physical changes.
An abdominoplasty can eliminate the excess skin and tissue along the stomach, removing the pooch or “muffin top” by pulling the skin and muscle tight, allowing clothes to fit better, increasing confidence and self-esteem, and improving intimate relationships. As long as a healthy weight is maintained, the results from a Tummy Tuck can be long-lasting.
